Rödelsee Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, at dexter a sinister facing swan combatant Argent, at sinister in base a grapevine Or with leaf.
The grapevine is symbolising the well known local viticulture. The swan is alluding to the Schwanleite, a local vineyard, the Schwanberg (= swan's mountain) and Schwanberg castle, which was built by the Bishops of Würzburg. The tinctures red and white are those of the bishopric and of Franken as well.
